The Fisk University women’s gymnastics team is continuing to break barriers and make history, this time as they host their first-ever hometown competition on Tuesday night.
As they face off against the Greenville University Panthers at Belmont, it will mark the first time a historically Black college or university (HBCU) has hosted an NCAA Gymnastics competition in history.
The team made history last year becoming the first gymnastics team at an HBCU to compete at the NCAA level.
“We’re thrilled to host the Greenville University Panthers and give our fans the opportunity to literally experience a gymnastics meet like never before,” said Fisk Athletic Director and Coach, Corrinne Tarver.
“This event promises to be an unforgettable experience for both our gymnasts and fans, as we showcase our passion, talent, and hard work on the mat.”
The meet will be live-streamed on the team’s Instagram account starting at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
